I don't know whether to be happy or pissed off, my car has broken down for the second time in a month (the last time it needed an Exhaust) and I can't get to work. So two days off at least for me (Yay!). This time it appears to be the clutch as I don't have reverse. This is really the last thing I need financially.

This has given me the time to finally type up the meme from darling_effect

ten cds you own:
From over 300, I’ll pick absolute classics:
1. Join Hands – Siouxsie and the Banshees
2. Rid of Me – P J Harvey
3. Songs of Faith and Devotion – Depeche Mode
4. Doppelganger – Curve
5. The Bends – Radiohead
6. Fontenelle – Babes in Toyland
7. Levelling the Land – The Levellers
8. Forever – The Cranes
9. Last Splash – The Breeders
10. Into the Labyrinth – Dead can Dance

nine bands you've seen live:
Oh so many:
1. Sonic Youth (Kentish Town Forum, 1994ish) – Best band I’ve ever seen, Prolapse in support darling_effect!
2. Blur (twice, at Wembley and at Mile End Stadium 1995?)
3. Pulp (at Glastonbury 1995)
4. Depeche Mode (5 times from the Music for the Masses tour to the Exciter tour, the best being the Crystal Palace gig with The Sisters of Mercy 1992?)
5. Suede (XFM Xmas Party, 1993)
6. PJ Harvey (Also at Glastonbury ‘95, I’d love to see her again)
7. Easyworld (January 2003)
8. Rage Against the Machine (Wembley, January 2000)
9. Katastrophy Wife (The Garage, December last year and again this year in May?) – The December gig was the worst gig I have ever been to, we went back again for the laugh, but it was better that time, good support both times from The Suffrajets)

eight songs you'd die without:
I think you can tell my head’s stuck in the early 90’s:

4. “I vacuumed out my head, Jumping from bed to bed, My name is Gretel, A soul of metal, My name is Gretel, I've got a sloppy slut” Babes in Toyland – Handsome and Gretel (for the sheer anger of it)
5. “You tell me it's gross to suck my yeast infection, How do you think I feel when I GAG on your erection?” Consolidated – You Suck (All the lyrics really, but that line is the best!)
